9:33 am
i usually ride the metro to work, but i have been driving to work. the daily traffic has taken some getting used to, but what i will never get used to and what is annoying me is no one in d.c. knows how to drive a traffic circle. surely i can't be the only one troubled by this. we are doing you, viewer, and hopefully everybody a favor. >> could you repeat that? >> this is a pain. you might know how to do it perfectly, but what about that visitor, new driver who tries no jump in here at full speed? >> forget the tourists. seems like every circle in washington is different. without local knowledge, you're up the creek without a paddle. i was looking at blogs from visitors who have endured our circles. one called them the circle of doom, the traffic circles in washington. >> it can be a pain. >> one said traffic circles are
9:34 am
always tricky, but in washington the planners found a way to make them trickier. >> are you going to call it a round about or a circle? >> i think we call them circles. it's ward circle -- >> this is chevy chase circle. what i always thought, and you can correct me or not, first of all, always yield to the traffic already in the circle, if you're at one of these streets trying to get in. is that correct? >> you must be a graduate student in circlology. >> right. >> that is the basic rule. >> true. >> if you remember that and you're sitting there, rule number one. rule mber two, the outer lane is for exiting. but chevy chase circle, a couple of lanes can exit, right? >> that's true. if you're in the outside lane and think you're going to go straight, you may have someone in the second lane that will cut in front of you. we see a lot of fender-benders because of that.
9:35 am
you're right. rule three i would say, expect the unexpected. >> yes. >> because people will do crazy things in circles. they realize where they're not where they need to be and they'll cut. we have a lot of tourists and that's before you get to the locals. >> the thing on this type of circle, too, you have to look at those lanes. if the lanes, the dotted lanes go this way, say there are three lanes, if you're in the middle, if my lane says i can exit, i can exit. that's what you got to know, 101, right? >> that's right. it gets more confusing. take a complex circle, like dupont. >> let's go to dupont, there we go. >> we have islands that separate the traffic. you may be in a traffic lane here and you really need to be in over there. of course, seems like everything exits on mass avenue. it is really tough. you have traffic lights added.
9:36 am
of course you've got separators separating traffic lanes. if you're in this lane, can't jump over to the other. >> which brings up a good point, lon, if you are in dupont circle and you know you can only go mass avenue, the signs are pretty good in dupont circle, but you have to follow the signs and look at the traffic lights, right? >> absolutely. i think even the most talented driver can get confused on dupont circle, regardless. you've got traffic, big trucks and add to that around dupont circle, a lot of tourists, pedestrians and bicyclists. >> which needs to be the next ask allison, if i'm a pedestrian and cyclist, sometimes they don't follow the rules of the road. they want to be in the road like a motorist, but you have to follow the same rules. >> right. you have to be watching out, because the light may be red, but that doesn't mean a
9:37 am
bicyclist or a pedestrian wouldn't be being through. >> one more. we have ward circle. you have a story about ward circle. this one is another one of those tricky ones, you've got to be in a certain lane. if you want to get off on nebraska, it's one thing. if you want to get off on mass, it's another thing. >> you can look at this ellipse inside the circle and recognize it will be a problem. i saw a blog, american university student new to the recently, and still trying to figure it out. >> he needs a grad degree in circlology. >> exactly right. realize you might make mistakes, be patient and realize that mistakes are correctable. what's not correctable is if you decide to make a sudden move. >> don't do it. >> that spoils the trip. >> the beauty of it, keep going around until you get to the right lane. that's the beauty of the
9:38 am
circle, perhaps. >> absolutely. one blogger said they buried a road underneath, why can't they do it for all the circles. >> lon, thank you for being with us on a friday. if you have a question you would like answered, send it to me, head to myfoxdc.com, click on the morning tab for a link to ask allison. we will be right back with the buzz bin. also donovan still coming up on fox 5 morning news. ♪ tell me something good ♪

i've had a few, but this one is jewel in the crown. >> i have to say, i've seen the footage of you receiving, accepting, and you seem truly touched by this. >> yeah, this comes from peers. other awards come from different areas, but this is the musicians, producers, music makers honoring one of their kind, and now i am one of their kind in the hall of fame. it's a great reflection on the work as well. it produces a great effect in new generations, turning onto my stuff. i like that. >> you know, not every -- a lot of the music from the sixties, and we mentioned a while ago that you contributed words to the beatles' yellow submarine, you were in that world, you and dylan and everybody else. why do you think so much of that music continues to live on? not all music does. this continues to live on with young people as well.
